Features & benefits

Presents detailed technical information and real-life case studies that help learners envision themselves as members of the health care team, providing the laboratory services specific to transfusion medicine that assist in patient care: 

  • A real-world “running” case study with initial questions for consideration, called Case In Point, is designed to introduce the chapter content.
  • Subsequent installments of the “running” case study, each with pertinent questions for consideration, are strategically placed throughout the rest of the chapter.
  • Tables, figures, and boxes are incorporated into the chapters as appropriate. 

Mixes theoretical and practical information relating to transfusion medicine that allows learners to analyse and synthesise information and, ultimately, to answer questions and solve problems: 

  • Each chapter begins with a general content outline, content-specific learning objectives, and a list of key terms (and phrases). Each key term and phrase is bold where the term is described. References to a term or phrase prior to its description appear in the text in italics.
  • The introduction for each chapter is titled What’s Ahead? and is comprised of an introductory paragraph followed by a series of questions with the answers covered in the body of the chapter. The chapter content is presented in a logical order under appropriate headings and subheadings.
  • Periodic self-assessment questions, known as Checkpoints, are strategically placed and are designed to provide opportunities for students to evaluate their understanding of the material.
  • Each chapter concludes with a Review of Main Points that reiterates key “take-home” content points of the chapter.
  • A set of review questions, each tied to a specific chapter learning objective, allows readers to assess their knowledge over the entire chapter content.
  • A list of references concludes each chapter.
